I have so much fun playing with druzy beads and Swarovski crystals. This piece is extra special thanks to the glittering BeCharmed beads at the center, as well as the pave clasp.
This fascinating necklace combines the deep, glittering blue of druzy beads with the stunning sparkle of Swarovski crystal, for a look that lights up like the night sky. Swarovski BeCharmed beads at the center of the design create a show-stopping finishing touch. This high-quality design is a perfect option for a Mother's Day gift. You can find more inspiration for making something for mom or any other special loved one in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 20 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto one end, followed by a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring attached to half of the 15x11mm silver-plated rhinestone magnetic clasp. Bring the jewelry wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Use a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover to hide the crimp.
Add a Dakota Stones midnight blue druzy agate 6mm round bead to the strand and then add the following pattern to the jewelry wire:
Two TierraCast antique silver 4mm twist heishi spacers
One Swarovski 6mm XILION bicone in Crystal AB
Two twist spacers
Three druzy beads
Repeat this pattern five times.
Add the following beads to the jewelry wire:
A TierraCast antique silver-plated pewter beaded EuroBead BeadAligner, a Swarovski 14mm BeCharmed Pave Snowflake Bead in Montana and Light Sapphire, and another BeadAligner. Make sure the BeadAligners are oriented inside the hole of the BeCharmed bead.
One druzy bead
A BeadAligner, the Swarovski 14mm BeCharmed Pave Snowflake Bead in White Opal and Light Sapphire, and a BeadAligner
One druzy bead
A BeadAligner, a blue Snowflake Bead, and a BeadAligner
Make a mirror image of the bead pattern from two on the other side of the BeCharmed beads.
Add a crimp tube to the wire, followed by a jump ring attached to the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
